2003 Christian Dior by Galliano Beaded Pale Pink Silk Flapper Mini Dress
An incredibly chic and well-documented Christian Dior ballerina slipper pink beaded silk chiffon mini dress. This incredibly rare Christian Dior treasure from John Galliano's stunning 2003 spring-summer collection is a perfect example of his genius. John Galliano is widely considered one of the most innovative and influential fashion designers of the early twenty-first century. He mingled his references in often surprising juxtapositions to create extravagant yet intricately engineered and meticulously tailored clothes. This dress is everything you look for in Galliano era Dior. The fabric itself is a masterpiece; silver toned glass beads, sequins and crstyals lavishly adorned on light weight silk chiffon in the prettiest pink color. The front ascot tie has the most magifient sparkle with an intensely beaded art deco scalloped pattern. Such a nod to 1920's flapper fashion! The halter bodice with a backless low drape has a captivating allure that I find irresistible. The fitted bodycon mini skirt silhouette has such a flattering shape. You will reach for this Dior anytime you want to look sensational. A rare wearable piece of fashion history.
